Israel: Worshipper Killed In West Bank Shooting Attack


At least one Israeli worshipper died and two were hurt in a shooting attack at a shrine in the West Bank city of Nablus on Sunday, the Israeli army said.

The shooting by Palestinians occurred before dawn at a site known as Joseph’s Tomb, the army said.

Ultra-Orthodox Jews frequently defy a military ban on entering the shrine that is in Palestinian controlled territory.

According to AFP, Palestinian witnesses said the army had sealed off the area and were conducting searches.
